The state required births to be registered beginning in 1904, although some Nebraska counties kept registers before that. From 1904 to 1911, births were usually filed only under the father’s name and didn't list the name of the child. Actual birth certificates started in 1912. Compliance was poor for many years. Beginning in 1941, a person born in Nebraska before 1905 could ask to have their birth record put on file (delayed birth).
